Luisa Costa de Oliveira

English Teacher, Portuguese for Foreigners and Spanish for Beginners 

Hi! My name is Luisa and I have always been a teacher. Believe it or not, I used to teach my teddy bears and dolls, but I started teaching for real when I was 17 after living one year in the States and taking an English teacher’s training course.
Then I went to college and earned my degree in Physical Education, I know it seems like those careers have nothing in common, but it was in college that I discovered that being a teacher is my vocation. Besides that, my background in physical education is reflected in my dynamic way of teaching.

I did my graduate studies in psycho-pedagogy, which was fundamental in my training as a teacher because it allowed me to develop my knowledge about ways of both learning and teaching.
As an English teacher I have worked in many schools, most of them bilingual ones, with kids of all ages (3-13 years old). Outside of grade schools, I have taught language courses to adults and teenagers. For several years, I also had my own little school where I taught small groups as well as one-on-one students.
I am also a Portuguese teacher, not a certified one, but  a passionate one. I re-discovered my native language when a friend asked me to teach her Brazilian Portuguese. I didn’t know why I said things a certain way, but as I taught, I studied my own language and learned the whys. Portuguese is a beautiful and yet a strange language that I love to teach as well.

In 2016 I accepted the challenge of teaching Spanish as well. I have lived in Argentina since 2011 and began to receive several requests to teach what I had already learned from my experience and discovered the pleasure of sharing the knowledge I had acquired living in a Spanish-speaking country. I focus on teaching Spanish from Argentina to beginners.

I have been teaching through Skype since 2009. I love using technology to make my classes more exciting, dynamic and interesting. 

It will be a pleasure to accompany you in your learning process!
